Let’s chat Red Maple Bark (Tree Skin for our Skin)
What is red maple?
Red maple is a deciduous tree native to North America that is well-known for its stunning autumn foliage and delicious sap that is used to make maple syrup. However, the benefits of red maple extend far beyond just its syrup. In fact, red maple has numerous benefits for the skin.
The bark of a tree serves as its true skin, housing a range of bioactive molecules that enable it to withstand external threats. Within these barks, abundant concentrations of natural compounds are synthesized, which can be easily extracted. Recognizing the intricate brilliance of nature and its hidden secrets, we propose harnessing the protective and reparative properties of these natural agents for the benefit of human skin. By leveraging the remarkable potential of our majestic forest trees, we aim to transfer these beneficial properties.
